From Australian perspective, you would be lucky to be able to put together a national fleet of 20 boats in any of the existing Olympic classes, other than the Laser. No one here sails 470's, Finns, RS:X and 49's unless they are doing an Olympic campaign. Whilst it appears Stars have been dropped, there would be lucky to be 5 in country. Olympic status has been well known as being a death nail to a class, which is why the ILCA resisted Olympic status for 2 decades. The strength of the Laser class comes from club level sailors and not the 20-30 elite sailors which the ILCA, ISAF and our national Laser Class associations and national sailing bodies dote over at our expense.
